Cycle touring & camping equipment add

Featured in the post above is a selection of bicycle touring & camping equipment from 1938 as advertised in " Cycling " magazine. The selection of goods for sale is quite different from today's vast choice at your local outdoor store. And many of these items are now only to be found on E bay or at local antique shops. For the traditional cyclist of today looking for period camping equipment it can be a struggle to find period items. I have seen some nice small canvas pup tents for sale at quite reasonable prices but they were ex army and green canvas not the traditional white color. But I think with a bit of Internet & antique shop hunting it would be possible to locate many of the items featured above.
